2015 Ford Mustang will get major changes for UK markets
Ford has recently announced the legendary Mustang will go on sale in Europe as part of the company’s renewed efforts to produce a global lineup of vehicles. Ford has not given details on what the next-generation Ford Mustang will look like, how much it will cost, or what powertrains it might offer yet. Alan Mulally, Ford’s president and CEO, as well as Stephen Odell, vice president and CEO of Ford Europe have done a good job of keeping the details of the new Mustang under wraps.
But details are beginning to leak out and Auto Car is reporting that the iconic Ford Mustang being offered in Europe with be engineered in right-hand-drive, and Ford will also drop the V8 engine for UK markets. They report that the Mustang platform will be re-engineered to accept right-hand drive and will get a “re-positioning of key componentry from the engine bay and front axle to package the new steering rack and steering column.”
A new global car
Ford knows that the next-generation Ford Mustand will truly need to be a global car and it will need to appeal to the European audience. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new 2015 European Mustang pony car will need to be reconfigured to handle the demands of UK enthusiasts. Ford will need to make major changes in order to satisfy this new market.
